Abstract

David J. Teece discusses with Sidney G. Winter some of the major contributions of Alfred D. Chandler, Jr. Topics discussed include path dependence and the organizational embeddedness of competences and capabilities, the recent financial crisis, and the electronic century in terms of Chandler’s priorities. Teece and Winter also consider both the promise and limitations of the Chandlerian approach to related matters in business and management theory.
